Economical Oslo Hotel Close to Transportation

Forgo the Car and Stay in Oslo's City Center

Scandic Byporten Hotel is in the heart of Oslo, Norway. It's in the same building as the Byporten Shopping Center, which links the hotel to the train station, a great benefit during inclement weather. Guests enjoy the brief walk to Johans gate and can also easily access the Akershus Fortress and other historic sites in town.

Oslo's parking is expensive, and with the pedestrian-friendly atmosphere of the city, a car is not needed. Plus city tours pass right in front of the hotel, making it easy to explore the city.

For visitors who must have a car, a rental agency is conveniently located in the train station nearby.

Couples: Splurge for the Superior Room

Scandic Byporten is an excellent value with free Wi-Fi in public areas and guest rooms, complimentary morning coffee in the lobby, and breakfast at Egon restaurant next door.

The standard guest rooms, however, are tight for people who are traveling in pairs, with either a queen bed or two twins. Some standard rooms come with bunk beds to accommodate the needs of families.

The superior and the superior extra rooms are still tight by American standards, but staying in your room wasn't the reason you came to Norway. The junior suite offers more room than the other standard and superior rooms, but it's more comparable to a standard room in the U.S. than what Americans refer to as a suite. 

Like many hotels in Oslo, room temperatures cannot be controlled from the rooms. Guests must call the front desk and ask for an adjustment. 

Some of the rooms offer beautiful views of the city and all of them have heated bathroom floors.

Bring the Kids and the Dog

Scandic Byporten caters to families. From bunk beds in some rooms to complimentary cribs, the staff is helpful in making arrangements as comfortable as possible. Kids will enjoy the on-site mobile playroom, which offers movies, computer games, and welcome presents. This hotel also allows dogs.

The Bottom Line

If you're looking for an economical, no-frills hotel that is conveniently located, Scandic Byporten is a good choice. Many of its amenities, however, are not in the hotel, but nearby, such as morning breakfast, the fitness center, and the pools. The rooms have a hostel-like simplicity, perfect for the budget-minded, but possibly not for those accustomed to luxury travel.
